The details of the plot haven't been revealed, but media reports say officials in the Bahamas are investigating the incident and are questioning one person described as a "politician."

“Regrettably in a time of such terrible grief, there are often a few individuals who attempt to make false claims in hopes of making millions of dollars,” Travolta's attorneys said in a statement. “We will never let that happen.”
